the power to heal
if only i could offer it! but i am trying to come as close as i can with my newest creation. i got some saddening news two weeks ago when a dear friend of mine’s 2 year old son was diagnosed with leukemia. talk about a punch in the gut. he had a fever one day and the next it is cancer. when i was told the news, i had this immediate need to do something. anything. i just needed to act. they live in australia so i couldn’t jump in the car and go visit, i couldn’t even really send food. all the stores are different so gift cards were also tough. so i prayed, i thought, i cried, and then i sewed.
two capes (using the tutorial found here). the light pink one on the left is for his sister. she is a rock star too. his cape is a bright white, which is what i visualize him surrounded by as he fights the cancer. i have been told that the energy of white light is extremely powerful. i also sewed an outline of archangel raphael, the archangel of healing, in the lining to keep an eye on my little friend. speaking of the lining, i chose a super soft white velour for the lining of both. he has a long battle ahead of him, and i can only hope that this will make him feel even more strong and powerful than he already is.
